Taking joint implants and surgically fitting them to exact patient anatomy is a time-consuming and challenging practice. Medical professionals must undergo years of specialized training and learn how to use specific tools and equipment.
Despite training and equipment, 10% of knee replacements surgeries fail every year and require revisions down the road. This is because joint replacement surgery has been stagnant for decades, and the sector desperately needs innovation to improve surgery success rates.
Monogram knows that the industry’s future requires the development of precision implants and cutting-edge insertion tools and techniques. That’s why the company is leading the way in precise, robotic-assisted surgery using personalized implants.
How Improved Knee Implants Help Surgeons
For years, surgeons had to perform procedures with generic implants using cement to secure them in place. As a patient’s bone structure is unique, generic implants don’t always work. Surgeons struggled to achieve consistent results.
Monogram next-generation knee implants harness the power of AI and 3D printing technology to make detailed scans of a patient’s knee structure. The surgeon can then use the data to produce a customized implant. This implant perfectly matches the patient’s anatomy and makes it easier for surgeons to fit the prosthetic into the existing bone structure.
The implants are FDA-approved and clinically tested to achieve consistent results for surgeons. Every component, including locking mechanisms, inserts, and articulating joints, is manufactured for long-lasting performance.
How Surgical Robotics Assist Surgeons
Monogram has invented new technology involving robotic arms, precision cutting tools, and high-accuracy guidance applications to assist surgeons during knee replacement procedures. One could say that the robot is essentially doing the heavy lifting for them.
The surgical robot consists of a robotic arm that can perform complex tasks with its 1.3-meter reach and flexible motion. Its seven degrees of freedom (for measuring range of motion) allows for highly precise work. The robotic components include integrated mastering sensors to improve safety, such as force and torque sensors, along with collision detection for enhanced surgeon-robot collaboration.
Next, it has a high-efficiency rotary cutting system that can navigate into tiny areas, while the closed-loop system provides real-time tracking of the cutting device for improved accuracy. These features ensure that surgeons have complete control and perform the surgery with great precision.
Moreover, Monogram’s navigation system provides surgeons with accurate real-time imaging and follows a pre-scanned detailed analysis of the patient's knee joint. These features help optimize surgical procedures and avoid line-of-sight issues.
With the implementation of Monogram’s robotic technology, the surgical workflow will remain highly streamlined, more efficient, flexible, and safe.
Invest In New Technology To Aid Knee Replacement Surgeons
The $19.6 billion implant replacement sector will grow in the coming decade, and the use of robotics will increase by 11% by 2027. Monogram is setting a new trend in these growing markets with proprietary, personalized orthopedic care.
Through innovations in robotics, 3D printing, and AI-driven software, Monogram is determined to reinvent traditional replacement surgery procedures. They aim to improve success rates for patients and boost surgeon workflow. Monogram is rebuilding surgical practices and helping surgeons achieve greater success on the operating table.
